Anyone with experience in Canon 50mm f/1.8 Mark I
Dec 22, 2009

Hi,

I am looking for comments on Canon's 50mm f/1.8 Mark I (the "nifty fifty" with metal lens mount, not the current one with plastic one) from those with actual hands-on experience in it. I am interested in buying a used one, and would like to know whether it is better than either the current Mark II version or even the 50mm f/1.4 in terms of image quality, as well as whether the CAD$200 asking price is fair market price.

Thank you, and wish you all a happy holiday (or Merry Christmas if you believe in Jesus).

Alan
